tDCS and Female Urinary Incontinence


Brief description of study

Urinary incontinence (UI) is defined as any involuntary loss of urine and can be divided into three types: urgency, stress and mixed. Pelvic floor exercises are considered the main non pharmacological choice for UI treatment. Its mechanisms are not fully understood, however there are some evidence that central mechanisms play an important role in the continence control. In this context, neuromodulatory techniques, such as transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS), that address cortical targets has been demonstrated promising results in different health conditions. However, few studies have investigated the efficacy of adding tDCS to exercise therapies for women with UI.
